Hardwell
From: NETHERLANDS
Hardwell

Award-winning DJ, producer, label manager, music lover, DJMag Top 100 list newcomer and barely 23 years old… Let us present to you: Hardwell!

This talented genius, better known as Robbert van de Corput started his DJ career at the age of 13. After this blow-out Hardwell’s talent was picked up by a Dutch label and they signed him when he was only 14 years old. Shortly after his label signing he started to play at all mayor clubs in the Netherlands.

For the last couple of years, Hardwell has been recognised by the industry as having a new and refreshing take on a scene that continues to evolve and seems to have an everlasting shelf life. His identity and musical development can be summed up in a single phrase, “Big Room House”. He has created his unique trademark as a DJ and producer around this sound.

His growing reputation and success was picked up by party-minded people, they voted for him for the DJMAG Top 100 this year and he got a well deserved #24 spot in the Top 100 list, his first entry into their charts. They pinpointed him as one of the leaders of a new generation of DJs and unequivocally one to watch in the future. The growing momentum of his ‘fresh and open-minded’ label, Revealed Recordings, certainly proves their point, and fans can expect loads of exciting new releases very soon.

Hardwell’s international breakthrough came with his Show Me Love vs. Be bootleg of Steve Angello and Laidback Luke’s track and Robin S’ classic. That bootleg became one of the biggest and most played dance hits of 2009.

In 2010 Hardwell went on to release several noteworthy tracks such as Alright 2010 ft Red Carpet and Feel so High ft I-Fan, licensed to 10 countries. Tracks like Molotov and Voyage and Move It To The Drum, a co-production with Chuckie, have had great support from the biggest names in the scene.

After launching his label Revealed Recordings in 2010, Hardwell also started with the release of the brand new Revealed compilation series. Hardwell presents Revealed gives you a clear vision about the sound Hardwell and the label represent. After two successful editions he will soon bring you volume three of the Revealed compilation series. On top of this killer list, Hardwell’s Eclectic Beatz compilations are some of the best selling mix albums of the last few years with 10 editions released in total. This summer he was also chosen to mix the 2011 Amnesia Ibiza compilation.

Hardwell has already showcased his remix skills for top DJs such as Fedde Le Grand, Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, Bob Sinclar, Chris Lake, Funkerman, Laidback Luke, Sharam (Deep Dish), Steve Angello, Booty Luv, Flo Rida ft. Akon, Martin Solveig, Dada Life, Alex Gaudino ft. Kelly Rowland, Gareth Emery and Hi_Tack.

2011 remixes include huge smashes like Taio Cruz, Hangover (Hardwell Remix), Tiësto ft. BT, Love Comes Again (Hardwell 2011 Rework), Martin Solveig ft. Kele, Ready 2 Go (Hardwell Remix) and DJ Fresh ft. Sian Evans, Louder (Hardwell Remix). But that’s not all! Hardwell’s bootleg of Avicii Levels had 100.000 plays on Soundcloud in only four days. His position as a true crossover artist is crystal clear – he’s in demand by some of the world’s biggest artists to give their tunes that big room house vibe.

This year Hardwell has continued to produce top records such as Encoded, a track with a teaser that was viewed over 700.000 times on YouTube, reached the Beatport Top 10 and gained major support from the biggest DJs worldwide. And did we mention his collaboration with Tiësto on hit record Zero 76 in February 2011? This banger went to #1 on Beatport and received a huge amount of airplay worldwide.

That success was compounded by the release of his track Cobra. This tune went to #1 in the dance charts in Holland and stayed for a month and a half in the Beatport Progressive House Top 10 after being released in over 20 countries worldwide. The teaser of this track had 100.000 views on YouTube in one week. He also collaborated with Nicky Romero on a tune called Beta, another huge hit that achieved international success. Watch out for new track Spaceman landing soon, as it’s bound to make you pay attention!

In March 2011 Hardwell launched his very own radio show, Hardwell On Air, giving everyone who hears it
an extra boost for the weekend. The show is broadcasted on Holland’s top dance station, SLAM!FM, on Sirius XM in the US and on Radio FG France and Belgium with more stations to be announced soon. Next to Hardwell’s latest floorfillers, the show also provides a platform for new DJ talent and shows Hardwell’s status as a true tastemaker in the music industry.

Behind the decks Hardwell never fails to deliver. His exceptional technical skills, variety of music, distinguished looks and that added personal touch make him stand out. These days he’s bringing it to the masses, with performances all over the world from Sydney to Miami and Ibiza to London. Hardwell recently toured with Tiësto through North America and made his debut at one of the worlds biggest dance events, ‘Sensation’ in Prague, Czech and Denmark and he did a full tour in the USA and played at EDC/Electric Zoo. His own event, ‘Hardwell Presents Revealed’ is well on its way to setting clubs worldwide on fire and upcoming gigs include an Extended USA Tour and headlining Energy 2012 “The Network”, one of the biggest indoor events in Europe and of course Revealed night at Set Miami

Do we need to continue? It’s clear as a bell… There’s a new kid on the block, and he’s here to stay.
